    Was just going off of this
    Brazilian Jiu Jitsu only came into “Buchecha’s” life in his mid teens. He was 14 years old when his sister first started training BJJ. Marcus’s father, Mr Cleiton Almeida, was very protective of his daughter, and started accompanying her to class. With time Mr Cleiton started practising himself, and from there it wasn’t long until he was dragging his son Marcus with him. Luckily young Marcus loved Jiu Jitsu from the start and started training every chance he could.

    He said '02-3 in the Stuart Cooper bio which would have been 12-13...




    In any event he followed exactly the path BKR mentioned, and what I've been talking about.
    He even had soccer aspirations first.

    I've eaten acai and drank the juice (which resembles blood).

    It's a fine laxative, I can tell you that.

    So what I've learned from this thread is that playing soccer is how you become a great fighter. Makes sense.

    I actually have thought it would be awesome to get my boy into hip hop dance lessons so he learns to move like teh black folk. He would rather die a slow and painful death though, I'm quite sure. So sure I haven't even mentioned it.

    There are multiple paths to excellence in sport, be it recreational, elite, or somewhere in between. However, I think that on average, the LTAD model I've posted is the best researched and documented.

    There are for sure variations on the theme that are viable.

    And there are outliers that will just bypass all that.

    Hard (and smart) work are going to be necessary in any case.

    Giving an example from my own experience. I've got teens in my judo class who started judo when they were 7 or 8 years old. They have done judo continuously since then, with breaks in the summer. They also play other sport...soccer, basketball, figure skating, volleyball, biking, hiking, etc. But they did keep up with Judo over the years. No cross training, but it's a very rural and fairly isolated area without a lot of options (kung fu, aikido, and karate). So no wrestling program, BJJ (until recently, in my town 35 miles south of them, or 45-50 miles to the east.

    So, there you go. Doing one primary sport but cross-training in non-combat sports, resulted in strong, healthy kids who all qualified for nationals (3 their first go at it) this year. I am hoping they will come down and do BJJ at the local academy as well.

    One of the two guys that earned his black belt is now 23 years old. He started judo at 6, played soccer a lot, got his shodan at 18 years old. His buddy is a year younger and started Judo at 8 or 9 years old, got his shodan at the same time. 10-11 years in, judo except in summers.

    Seems like a reasonable path to follow.

    Maybe you should introduce him to the young ladies that take those classes. It should be an easy sell after that.
